The Interim Patient Service (IPS) is a telephone consultation service that offers treatment, information and advice for a range of minor illnesses and injuries. It’s open every day 8am-8pm, including bank holidays.
The service is available at the Junction Health Centre to ALL patients. Patients requiring medical advice will receive a telephone or video consultation from a clinician. To arrange an appointment please contact the Junction Health Centre or if you are a Wandsworth resident, you can access this service directly from your GP practice.
If you require a face-to-face appointment following your telephone or video consultation, your clinician will book you in to be seen. The service is by appointment only.
